We’re delighted that people are finding their way to our online shop! Thanks for your support as your purchases help sustain us through the wet season. Injalak Arts’ artists are productive all year round but our direct sales are only in the dry season. We will be uploading fresh stock weekly from now until end of November so make sure you check in regularly. We have lots of SMALL affordable paintings and also some beautiful larger ones. All with FREE SHIPPING. The shop works best for paintings as we can only upload a single image. NB: a certificate of authenticity is provided with every online purchase We will be creating a more 3D (basket/artefacts etc) friendly shop soon. Meanwhile our online Etsy shop is also getting regular attention with newly printed fabrics uploaded a few times a week. Our fabric fans know to keep an eye on that as nearly all our fabrics are one-off colors/designs.Read More
It’s starting to get a bit warmer and it’s turtle hunting season. Lots of lovely people are still visiting us at Injalak Arts in Gunbalanya (Oenpelli) and we are delighted to host many again at Provenance Arts in Darwin. If you are in Darwin make sure you drop in and have a look at our beautiful space full of arts, crafts, souvenirs and fabrics from more than 20 art centres around Australia. There’s cold water on tap, air-conditioning, a NT music listening post, theatrette with videos playing, places to sit, books to read and often artists and demonstrators to meet and learn from. We also have a program of events. Some school holiday activities will be listed very soon. At this time of year as visitor numbers start to decline our thoughts turn to online – so we’re restocking our Etsy shop with fabrics as we print them (often the same day). We have so much beautiful fabric in stock that it’s a joy to print. We are also putting lots of gorgeous and affordable little paintings in our online shop. There you will find turtles, mimi spirits, fish, birds and lots more. FREE SHIPPING from our website shop in October.Read More

Willie and Gabriel gather artistic inspiration from edible aspects of nature in West Arnhem Land. Willie’s beautifully executed paintings of native plants arise out of a life spent closely observing the natural world. Gabriel’s paintings feature animals. A renowned artist and co-manager of Injalak Arts, Gabriel also illustrated and co-wrote The Kunwinjku Counting Book. Published in 2016 this book has been extremely successful and the world-wide hardcover rights have been acquired by publisher Enchanted Lion to be printed in 2019. This is the first time Willie’s paintings have been featured in an exhibition.Read More
